DEVELOPERS are planning 120 new homes in Pinhoe.
In the latest development proposed for the ward the homes would be centred around Home Farm and would be built on both sides of Church Hill if given the go-ahead.
A planning application is shortly to be submitted to Exeter City Council.
The news has not been welcomed by Dave Mogford, chairman of Pinhoe Community Association.
Mr Mogford said: “I don’t know where it is all going to stop.
“I knew this would happen, that once they got planning permission for one the flood gates would be opened.”
Redrow are currently building 250 homes in Harrington Lane, which is just off Church Hill and permission has been granted for a development of 380 homes on what was Pinhoe Quarry, again off Harrington Lane.
Rev Mike Partridge, rector at Pinhoe, lives in Church Hill and is concerned about any increase in traffic.
He said: “I would be very anxious about whether the road network could sustain the extra traffic.
“The road leading up to Home Farm is very narrow and is very busy in the morning and evenings.
“I don’t think this is particularly because of the school in Harrington Lane but is used to commute from Stoke Canon by those coming down to work in Exeter.
“The traffic situation at the moment is aggravated because that are a lot of lorries coming and going to Exeter Quarry.”
According to the developers of the Home Farm site large areas of ‘publicly accessible open space’ would also be provided, along with improved and new footpath and cycle links and a ‘comprehensive water attenuation scheme to alleviate existing flooding issues in Pinhoe’.
